Default Are snap clips better than alligators for being discrete?

I just made a ton of flower clips for headbands and beanies and I *hate* how you see the pinch part of the clip. Would huge flowers even hold on a snap clip? Are they a pain to line? TIA!

I wish I could line a snap clip that turned out worth a darn! I know what you mean about the pinch part showing though and I agree, I hope the snaps work for you!

Thanks you guys. I don't love the look of the wrapped snap clips, but maybe I don't have a lot of options here. I'll have to play around a bit.

Any other ideas?

I don't like regular lined snap clips either, but what about the ones wrapped with 1/4''? They're kind of nice (IMO).

When I do flowers I line my allie clip and flip it upside down so that the flower lays flatter. KWIM? I also have used snap clips, but I have a Cuttlebug machine, and I cover the clip first in felt and then I adhere my flower. It works well and looks good.

If you want to use them to clip on hats I don't think a snap clip would be strong enough.
